Sarfaraz Khan is having a brilliant time in domestic cricket as the right-handed batter mustered 138 runs in 178 deliveries in the Irani Trophy against Saurashtra. After smashing the ton, he destroyed Sir Don Bradman in the domestic circuit.
Brandom mustered a total of 2927 runs in the first 22 first-class matches, Sarfaraz scored 2928 runs but it took him seven more innings than the veteran batter. Sarfaraz has the second-best strike rate in the domestic arena and Bradman is ahead of him in the category.
Sarfaraz has mustered nine 100s and five 50s in his last 24 First Class innings. His team in this game against Saurashtra crossed the 300- run mark in the first innings and has a strong position to get a big lead after the first innings.
Sarfaraz’s performance has even impressed his teammate Suryakumar Yadav who watched the game on TV. His numbers also took a big spike thanks to his consistent run.
The Mumbaikar played one of his best knocks and added 185 runs for the unbroken fourth wicket stand with Hanuma Vihari who did the batting for 62 runs in 145 balls.
He even played some attractive shots square of the wicket but the way in which he toyed with Jayadev Unadhat was worthy of applause.
Unadkat delivered two bouncers at varying pace. He maintained his form to come beneath the delivery in the first one, then lifted it uppishly for a six. He moved his arms over to keep the pull shot down for a boundary on the next bouncer from the same position.
Then left-arm spinner Dharmendra Jadeja’s century came as a result of a late cut-off. Later, as Unadkat was forced to expand his field to stop boundaries, he repeatedly slog-swept Jadeja for three boundaries.
